Creamy Smoked Salmon Dip

8oz. Nancy’s cultured cream cheese* (room temp. is best)
1/4 tsp. salt

1 T. fresh lemon juice
2 tsp. finely chopped onion

Garnish options: chopped pecans, parsley, chives, green onions, or whatever suites your fancy

Beat the cream cheese at medium speed for about 2-3 minutes. Add salt, lemon juice, liquid smoke and horseradish. Continue beating until well mixed. Gently fold in salmon. Garnish and serve with veggies, crackers, pita chips, or use as a filling in little tea sandwiches. Enjoy!

* Any brand of cream cheese can be used, however Nancy’s cultured cream cheese is absolutely divine! Plus, it has been cultured which means that it’s easier to digest and contains naturally occurring probiotics.  As an added bonus it is also free of fillers and gluten.

** Liquid smoke is used in very small quantities in the recipe, however, I don’t recommend consuming it on a regular basis. It can be omitted however, it will change the flavor of the dip.

    If you are gently folding in the canned salmon, won’t you have the bones in the dip?

    • Nancy- Thank you for pointing this out! I just assumed that most people would know that you must use a fork to mash up the salmon bones, meat and skin. I’ll be more specific in the recipe. Thanks!
